The 2008 Ford F-150 comes in such a wide variety of trims that it is possible to find just about any feature you could want in a pickup as either standard or an available option.

Standard features vary widely across the Ford F-150 2008 lineup, and the models are clearly targeted at very specific markets. Edmunds says that the "bare-bones XL," which is "geared towards commercial use," features "17-inch steel wheels, vinyl seating, AM/FM radio and, apart from air-conditioning in the new SuperCrew version, not much else." They write that the Ford F-150 STX is "similarly equipped," and adds "an upgraded sound system with a CD player and auxiliary audio jack." On the Ford F-150 2008 XLT, which is Ford's biggest seller, ConsumerGuide finds that standard features include full power accessories, "front-hinged rear doors," and "automatic headlights," along with "carpeting [and] floormats." The upscale Lariat and Harley-Davidson trims of the Ford F-150 bring "automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power driver seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls," and a "trip computer," according to ConsumerGuide.

For many prospective Ford F-150 2008 buyers, customization is an important reason for their purchase, and reviews read by TheCarConnection.com indicate that the 2008 Ford F-150's long options list offers quite the opportunity for customization. Edmunds says that "key F-150 options include remote starting, a navigation system, a back-up camera, a rear parking sensor, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system and a sunroof." ConsumerGuide mentions that many of the lower trims can add upper-trim features as options, and "captain chairs" can replace the front bench seat, while an "audiophile sound system" brings a "6-disc CD/MP3 changer" to all but the XL trim of the 2008 Ford F-150.

Conclusion

The 2008 Ford F-150 can be almost endlessly customized, but for those who don't want to deal with options list, the standard features are impressive already.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
